Saarland University, located in the southwest of Germany, has announced a new Master's Degree in Visual Computing, an interdisciplinary master course that "imparts knowledge about digital images", and is aimed partly at game development training. The master course has stemmed from beliefs that in order to create and analyze digital images in an appropriate way, a profound and broad scientific knowledge is necessary. According to Saarland University, visual impressions constitute the most important sensory information for humans. Therefore, more and more informations are represented by digital images and visual simulations. As a result, Saarland University now offers an interdisciplinary master course of studies that is entirely devoted to visual information processing. Students with a bachelor degree in computer science, mathematics, physics, electrical engineering, mechatronics or related fields can apply. An MSc in Visual Computing is an internationally accepted degree. It offers job opportunities in growth sectors such as computer game companies, multimedia, telecommunication, and media design sectors. The visual computing master course of studies is coordinated by the Computer Science Department of Saarland University and supported by the Departments of Mathematics, Mechatronics and Physics, as well as by the Max Planck Institute of Computer Science, and the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence. This provides a unique environment for studies and research in visual computing. Visual Computing is a research-oriented international course of studies that can be studied entirely with English as language of instruction. The European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) has been implemented. The regular duration of studies is two years (four semesters). Students can either start in the winter term where the lecturing period starts around mid of October, or in the summer term where lecturing starts around mid of April. Some grants for very gifted students are provided by the International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS). Informations on closing dates and how to apply can be found at the Master's in Visual Computing website.
